I’m the Tax Manager leading the Private Client Tax Department here in the St Albans office of Rayner Essex. I’m ATT & AAT qualified and joined Rayner Essex in July 2002. I’ve now worked in practice for over 20 years, in all different sizes of firms from “the Big 4” to sole practitioners.
My broad range of experience ensures that I am able to offer sound and reliable advice in all aspects of private client work, both in compliance and advisory projects.
The “people aspect” of private client work really appeals to me, not just in dealing directly with and supporting clients but also in the training and mentoring of my team. My career at Rayner Essex is well established and I love working here.
It’s a testament to the firm’s relaxed and friendly atmosphere which I know transcends through to our clients.
Tax is an ever changing and increasingly global environment, keeping on top of the legal developments and focussing on successful outcomes for my clients holds my focus all week.
When I get the opportunity, I enjoy adventure travel to far flung places. I’m a keen photographer and love walking and trekking, I recently walked the Great Wall of China and have some great photos to prove it! The excitement of visiting new countries and experiencing different cultures never ceases – the great outdoors will always be special to me.
For relaxation, I practice yoga and mindfulness which helps me to deal with the various demands in life as well as tax deadlines throughout the year!
